Waypoint arrival

How do I get OpenCPN to beep when I get to the arrival distance of the waypoint? I need to change course by hand on my old Mark 4 pilot at that point.

Re: Waypoint arrival

Good question. I thought you could set it up in the Watchdog app, but I just tried (to no avail).

Re: Waypoint arrival

Suggest you read
Marks and Routes | Official OpenCPN Homepage (at the bottom)
"Autopilots and Routes, the basics."
"Autopilots and Routes, the details."

Then put a Tracker Request for this feature
Put it under the Watchdog_pi project and
OpenCPN Features project.
